Emily San Nicolas, Kahjal Merchant, Adam Miranda – Hip Hop in the Park 2018

Date grant awarded: October 15, 2018

Kahjal Merchant and Adam Miranda received Pollination Project funds for their project “Hip Hop in the Park” located in Berkeley, CA.

Hip Hop in the Park is the longest running hip-hop event in Northern California. Much more than a simple concert, Hip Hop in the Park takes resources out of the university and gives it back to the community using hip hop as a medium.

The event celebrates all four elements of hip hop showcasing live graffiti artists, a b-boy battle and live MCs and DJs. This free, all ages event brings together community members with diverse backgrounds to celebrate a common love: hip-hop.
